Ticket #9531 (closed defect: duplicate)
Already-running guest crashes on attempt to start it again 4.1.2
|Reported by:||appyface||Owned by:|
Using 4.1.2 on host Win7 Pro SP1 64-bit with guest XP Pro SP3 32-bit.
I use Windows Task Scheduler to ensure some VMs are running during certain periods. The task scheduler issues a script containing these commands:
VBoxManage snapshot "%vmname%" take "%yy%%mm%%dd%-%hh%%min%%ss% autosnap" --description "%yy%%mm%%dd%-%hh%%min%%ss% autosnap" VBoxManage startvm "%vmname%"
(date/time variables are determined earlier in the script)
In previous VBox versions, if these commands were issued against a running guest, both failed and no update or other harm came to the guest.
Now, the guest is crashed and Critical Error Guru Meditation messagebox is shown. The guest not only stops working but must be recovered, as the snapshot information in the XML files becomes corrupted.
Vbox.log from a crash example is attached. Thank you for your time.
